9/10 I would have rated it a 10 but the ending was not what i expected i mean not in a omg surprising way but in more of a bland anti climactic way. If you got to run the triads after you defeated big smile lee it would have set up for a sequel in a much better fashion. Also if there is a sequel (which lets be honest there will be one without a doubt) then they should really focus more on the main the character, i know they did a great job in this one but aside from the triads and the occasional cop mission there was nothing else to push forward to. All in all i do like this game alot and would recommend it to just about anyone that doesn't mind the graphic deaths (that were awesome)!!

A game that gets everything right.
Driving is clean and fun and quickly learned, and not difficult to get some fast cars.
Combat is actually interesting, not the standard run-of-the-mill haymaker punches. Reminiscent of Batman but not quite as demanding.
Shooting was probably needed the most fine-tuning, but it's not all that often that you notice or care.. and there might've even been settings to simplify it, I never minded enough to look to be honest.
The map itself is big enough to be big, and yet small enough to not be overly so. And ultimately you won't mind driving the distances you need to cover.
For once, it'll be GTA that has something to learn in this genre.
